PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - CCTV cameras at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) have captured a clearer image of a woman believed to be one of the assassins who killed Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The image zooms in on the alleged killer's features, depicting her to be middle-aged and of Asian descent.

In the grainy image, she can be seen wearing a top with the word "LOL" in large letters and a blue short skirt, with her right hand over a small sling handbag.

An earlier CCTV image that had been circulating online showed a picture of a woman believed to be the same person, but taken from a greater distance and at a different angle.
